I'm so freakin' tired this week. Maybe I have mono. Or maybe the depression I feel about still not having finished my damn living room has finally caught up to me. Or maybe I'm over worked. Maybe I'm just a sniveling little whiner who is just lucky enough to have a house and JobS! to complain over. Or maybe I'm getting soggy and growing gills from all this rain. Or maybe maybe~I'm just tired =)

*Today's To Do List*
Vacuum wallpaper shavings and Dagobaz fur from living room carpet
Call Miss Alice
Return library books
Bury dead garage possums
Pay gas bill
And so the possum saga continues....I decided today was the day to reclaim the garage and revert it back to it's original use instead of being used as a furniture warehouse and possum cemetery. After digging a hole and disposing of two shriveled little bodies, Edgar informed me that I had one more to go. Unfortunately for him, he had discovered the 3rd causality a few days earlier while attempting to find a leaf rake. Fortunately for me, the possum had had the good sense to die on a blanket. Now I'm the last one to throw anything away without using up the very marrow of the thing. And even though it was from mexico and in perfectly good shape-I had to toss the dead possum blanket. No matter how many times you wash it, there's something about cozyin' up in a blanket which a small mammal expired and indeed decayed on, which is downright unpleasant.

Had an infamous Lake bonfire last night and my baby sister was her spritey little self, which was nice. Anyway, standing around a roaring fire with crickets chirping in your ear and a cold beer in your hand, one gets philosophical. And so, keeping with the theme of last night and honoring the good ol' boys aptly named drew & ian, here is my list of bonfire truths~
1. People die too young sometimes and there's nothing you can do about it but honor who they were and what they might have become.
2. Sometimes the only thing holding you back from what you want most in this life is your own self imposed chains. Barriers that you've built around yourself for one reason or another and that only you can take down.
3. That good men & women are hard too find. Should you be so lucky to stumble across one-do whatever is in your power to hold onto them.
4. People surprise you. You find out that your dad, who you've never seen throw a football or kick a soccer ball, ice skates every winter. Or that your mountain man of a brother wants to move to Dubai.
